I think there's a big difference between a few proprietary protocols 
implemented by major IM vendors, and a protocol which has been standardised 
and implemented by hundreds.  Transports for things like MSN aren't important 
because we don't want to encourage people to use these closed protocols.

(Of course, if Jingle were all that existed in XMPP land, would it not be 
possible to make a service which bridged Jingle directly to the PSTN?)
